CJP protesters beaten, 30 held.

ISLAMABAD: Thirty people were injured on Monday in clashes between the police and participants of a rally demanding the restoration of the deposed superior court judges and an end to curbs on media. The participants of the rally tried to enter the Judges Enclave to express solidarity with the sacked judges, but upon being stopped by police, pelted them with bricks and stones. In retaliation, the police resorted to teargas shelling and baton-charge, injuring dozens of protesters. Police also arrested 30 people and shifted them to Secretariat police station. Later, people protesting outside the police station against the brutal government action were baton-charged by the police. fazal sher.
